    Rally tomorrow, Friday, at 1:45pm outside the (In)justice Center! PETITION FOR RETRIAL OR REMOVAL OF JONATHAN’S CHARGES NOW!

    One correction, this is the fifth Occupy Portland-related trial, but the first trial by jury. Four defendants facing violation charges already defended themselves in a trial by judge. None of them had lawyers and they were found guilty by Judge Albrecht and charged with $100 fines each. http://www.portlandoccupier.org/2012/03/14/occupys-battles-in-court/

    If you would like to help these and other defendants with their fines, donate to the legal fund on http://occupyportland.org/donate/, or give directly to the defendants.
